International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program

The International Baccalaureate is a globally recognized education path and diploma.

International Baccalaureate (Ib) World School

Built on a cornerstone of creating a better world through education, the IB Programme curriculum promotes the education of the whole person. Courses emphasize the humanities, philosophy, and international mindedness, and are based in application and projects, rather than memorization. The IB Programme prepares students to achieve their academic potential and lead a life of prosperous world citizenship.

Fairmont is 1 of only 2 schools in California and 1 of roughly 40 in the United States to offer all three IB Programmes — IB Diploma Programme (Fairmont Preparatory Academy), IB Primary Years Programme, and IB Middle Years Programme (Historic Anaheim Campus). Two Fairmont educators have also been named to the prestigious IB Educator Network.

Why IB Programme at Fairmont?

Our close-knit diverse family and our commitment to exceptional academic performance, small classroom sizes, and the rich curriculum of the International Baccalaureate create a truly transformative global education for students.

Step by Step
The Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme serve young, curious minds as they develop an understanding of who they are and how the world works, guided by an internationally-minded, inquiry-based approach that is considered a world-standard in education.

The Diploma Programme culminates with an IB diploma, as students enter their next phase of academic pursuits. The IB continuum aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally, and ethically.

Primary Years Programme

Through its inquiry-led, transdisciplinary framework, the Primary Years Programme challenges students to think for themselves and take responsibility for their learning, as they explore local and global issues and opportunities in real-life contexts.
